Project 24: I made fabric! and Lessons learned

July 3, 2011

Case closed

The coolest thing about weaving is that when you’re done you have fabric which you can then make into anything you want. I finished my weaving this afternoon and quickly sewed it up into this awesome hand-woven case for my new phone.

Check it out:

Isn’t it cute? It’s like a little 70’s sweater for my Android.

Lessons learned:
– I can accomplish nothing when I’m sick. Stupid sinus infection.
– I am not a perfectionist and that is ok.
– This project reminded me of my parents the whole time I was doing it and I don’t know why.
– There is nothing like waning afternoon light to get me over my procrastination so I can take photos.
– Weaving is fun!

I am quite pleased with my first weaving project. I love when these projects can be made into something useful.

I’ll be taking tomorrow off to celebrate the 4th of July, but check back Tuesday for a brand new craft project!

  2. Good work! I like that you made something from the cloth right away – I leave things half done all too often.
